Nursing Scholarship: An Invite To The Dying Profession - Articles Surfing
Over the past years, there is a significant in the number of students who are taking up the course that leads to become nurses. In fact, nearly 100,000 vacant slots for nurses have been reported in 2005. And since America needs healthcare services, 100,000 are very big number and needs to be responded immediately.
Yes, the government has made international call for help. This results to the influx of nurses from all over the world especially from the Philippines and India. But then, we cannot say that it is enough. The country should not always be taken cared of by others. It should be taken cared of their very citizen.
However, as nationalistic as it may sound, the fact still remains that very few Americans are taking this problem seriously and very few Americans don't like the idea of working at the hospital unless they are doctors.
As a good response, institutions and other local governments have supported the call for the promotion of nurses are a good profession. And one way to do that is by offering several types of nursing scholarships all across the country.
Nursing scholarship is not different from other types of scholarship. Before the student becomes a nursing scholar, he or she has to go through exams and screening processes. The student has to submit the necessary documents similar to other students who apply for other types of scholarship. If the student passes, he or she will receive as much as 100% financial aids. The nursing scholar will receive allowances for books, laboratory materials, dorm and lodging, foods, and everything a regular scholar would get. Of course, all these would depend on the institution that grants the scholarship. Others may give different amounts but the same principle applies; to invite students to take nursing for free or almost free.
If becoming an RN has never been your dream or has never been they chosen profession, remember this: if you cannot afford to finance your studies and have no choice but to apply for a scholarship program, consider nursing scholarship. Not only you would save the dying profession, you will also get the honor to take care of your citizens. Who knows, it could be your relative lying on a hospital bed without a nurse to assist him (her). Act now for your future.
